Week 10 Information

Welcome to week 10...we did it!

We have had such a wonderful term and I can't believe I only have one more term with your beautiful children :( I know I am not going to cope at the end of the year! 

Just a few things for this week...

Open Classroom 

Tonight is your chance to come and check out the work your child has been doing throughout the year. It starts in the hall at 5pm, where Mr Lee will welcome us and some students will carryout a short musical performance. Classrooms will then be open from 5.15-6pm for you share in celebrating your child's achievements.

Please remember that this is a special time to spend with your child to discuss what they have enjoyed learning, and not a time to discuss any issues with the teacher. I am happy to make a separate appointment to do this, where needed. I look forward to seeing you tonight.

Athletics Carnival 

Please note that the athletics carnival is tomorrow. The events schedule was emailed out to all parents last Friday, see the office if you have not received this. 

It is looking to be a beautiful sunny day, therefore it is important that your child has had sunscreen applied in the morning before coming to school. We will have some on hand in the tents as well. As usual your child is to come to school in their faction uniform with their hat, water bottle and food in their school bag.

The children are welcome to wear face paint and bring teddies so that they can cheer for their team. 

The canteen will be doing a sausage sizzle ($3) for lunch, however you need to place an order at the canteen with the correct change and their faction labelled on the bag. Parents can purchase one on the day.  Tea/coffee and cake will also available for purchase on the day for $5.

If you would like to take your child home after the carnival, you will need to fill in a form found in the front office. You or anyone else, will not be able to take your child if I am not given this form. Thank you to those would have brought theirs in already.

Church this Friday 

All parents are welcome to come along and celebrate the end of term Thanksgiving Mass. We will be walking down to the church together and you are most welcome to join us. 

Change of Literacy Block  Routine

In accordance with our original plans of support for the Preprimary Year One split this year, Mrs Sorgiovanni will reduce her support time for Year One in Term Four. Now that the Preprimaries are reading and writing and follow routines comfortably they will be included in the PLD spelling groupings along with the rest of the Year ones and twos. Preprimaries and Year Ones will rotate through writing activities and Mrs Birch will participate in Year One guided reading sessions while the Preprimaries enjoy their outdoor education programme with Mrs Leahy and the Education Assistants.
We thank Mrs Sorgiovanni for being a very important part of Year One English Learning this year.

Keep an eye on the blog for our amazing write up from our Wonnerup House visit :)

Wonnerup House Excursion

The time has come for our excursion!

The children are very excited and we are hoping that the weather God's will look after us tomorrow! Just a few things for the day:

Parent helpers, we shall see you at Wonnerup house at 10.30am - I think some lovely people have offered to carpool to the excursion together.

Come dressed in your best 'olden days' clothes (if the children are willing to) and that is also including parents :)

Please bring your child's lunch, recess and water bottle in a small reusable/green bag with their name somewhere on it. We will have sip and crunch before we head onto the bus so please bring this in as normal.

We should hopefully be back to OLC by 1.45pm/2.00pm at the latest.

Many thanks for your continued support

Week 9 Information

Image result for keep calm and be kind

Good evening Parents,

We are almost there! Not long to go until the end of term...I cannot believe it! The children are getting tired BUT I am encouraging them to think of others and just be kind to one another :)

Just a few reminders this week...

Sports Carnival
The Sports Carnival has changed from Thursday of this week to Tuesday of next week (24th of Sept) due to inclement weather. Hopefully we will have a sunny day and be ready to rock and roll on Tuesday!

Wonnerup House

We are very excited for our visit to Wonnerup house this Friday! Hopefully the weather Gods will look after us and give us a nice sunny day! I have everyone's permission slips (well done everyone!) and the children have loved learning about the 'olden days' in class. It will be a dress up day but please feel free to go very simple in the costume department.  Thank you to all those who volunteered to come and help. I will contact you via email this week with information on where we will meet you.

Sight words

Last week both Year One classes took part in a sight word review. All the children were tested on the first 100 words to see what they have retained or to see what words they already know (if they have not reached the last set of 25 words). This week, the children will not be tested on their words but be given their review words to take home and practise. Please take some time to go over these with your children as this may mean they have not retained previous words they have learnt. If you have any concerns, please email me.

Mental Maths
This will be the last week of Mental Maths for Term 3 (Unit 17). The children have loved their weekly challenge and it has certainly helped their number attack skills within our in class maths program.

Children away in Week 10
If any families are sneaking away to an early family holiday (very jealous) or work commitment which prevents your child from attending school in week 10, could you please email me ASAP and let me know the dates as we are attempting some reading and maths assessments in the last few days of term.

If there are any other questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email me.

Many thanks

Week 8 Information

Here we are at week 8!

Only three weeks to go...but who is counting?!

Just a few messages this week...

Throws carnival

Tomorrow at 11.20am, the Year One students will be having their throws carnival, the last event before the athletics carnival next Thursday. Please make sure that your child is dressed in their sports uniform with their faction shirt tomorrow. Everyone is welcome to come along :)

Excursion notes

Thank you to all of those people that have handed in their permission slips over the last few days, if you have not done so, please hand it in ASAP and if you need another one, please let me know.

Shoebox items

Keep bringing in those items and the $2.50 for your shoeboxes. The children have loved seeing the different videos of where their shoeboxes might be going and we will be completing a special 'about me' page to put in the box when it heads overseas. Please remember, we are not allowed to send toothpaste, food items, playing cards or anything that can melt as it will not be accepted by the company.

OLC Open Evening

On the final Monday of term (23rd of September), from 5-6pm, we will be holding our Learning Journey to share the rich learning that has taken place in classes this term. If parents assemble in the hall at 5pm, there will be a short welcome and musical presentation. All parents are then free to walk through the classrooms to look at their child's work and art displays.

Family Mass

Thank you to all the families that attended our Mass on Saturday. The children were absolutely beautiful and many of the Parishioners mentioned how well reverent and respectful the children were. A big thank you to Mrs. Hughes who organised the pizzas, Mrs. Horrocks for the music and Mrs. Meyer for leading the Mass.

Jumps Champions

What an absolutely beautiful morning for the jumps day. I was looking out the window from my bedroom, wishing I was there and the gorgeous Emma sent through these photos of the children!

Congratulations to the jumps winners:

Girls: Ayva, Kate, Zoe H, Sienna and Emme
